YA Review: The Long Way Home by Andrew Klavan

Book Description:

From Edgar Award winning and best-selling author Andrew Klavan comes the second novel in the Homelanders series.
Charlie West was an ordinary high school kid who went to bed one night and woke up in the clutches of terrorists and wanted by the police for murder.

Now, with both the terrorists and the cops on his trail, Charlie makes his way home to find some answers. Holed up in an abandoned mansion, Charlie is joined by his high school buddies as he tries to find the truth about a murder he can't remember--and recover the love he can't forget.
My Review:
This is the second book in "The Homelanders" series. Unfortunately for me, I missed out on book one. (but I plan on finding that one too!)
Andrew Klavan is a wonderful writer who gets you pumped up at the very beginning of the story. I was really caught up within the first chapter.
It's seemed to me that that book was based around the (never ending) battle between good and evil. I thought (for once LOL) that it was pretty easy to determine what side each character represented.
The plot was definitely an exciting one and kept me interested.
Overall..."The Long Way Home" was a very well written and somewhat intense YA book. It's a YA Christian fiction story but I would say it's way more on the contemporary side of Christian fiction that I've read lately. I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading the next in the series.
